Getting COVID-19 is bad enough without being denied leave.
A PSA member in the Hunter caught the virus, but was told by her Team Leader that Special Leave introduced for the pandemic was no longer available.
However, when she phoned the PSA Member Support Centre (MSC) she was advised the Premier’s Circular was still active and she thus raised the issue with her Manager.
She was granted Special Leave after contacting management.
“This case proves how important it is to contact the MSC,” said Member Services Manager Kym Ward. “Your union is on your side.”
